How Small Businesses Can Weather the Inflation Storm

Inflation is defined as the general increase in prices and the fall in the purchasing value of money. As you can imagine, this cause-effect relationship can have a wide-ranging impact on small business owners. This can include rising costs for inventory/materials, the subsequent raising of one’s own prices to keep up, and a potential loss of business to competitors as a result. This is just a simple example, as there are countless other ripple effects involved for business in different industries. Moreover, in times of high inflation, small business owners sometimes scramble for new sources of materials and/or overhaul their systems, which can incur large up-front costs. Any combination of these events can severely impact small business owners’ bottom lines in the short and long term.

For the 12 months that ended in February 2022, the inflation calculator reflected a four-decade high of 7.9%. There are many contributing factors to this dramatic rise, including repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic, global supply chain issues, and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, which is exacerbating things by impacting energy prices. For many small business owners who were looking forward to a big summer after emerging from the shadows of the pandemic, this has thrown a wrench into their plans. The government is actively taking measures to combat inflation, so hopefully, this is more of a temporary setback, but small business owners still must navigate through this challenging landscape. The looming threat of a recession adds more fuel to the fire but is something that can be overcome on an individual level through proper planning and opportunistic decision-making.

Combat Inflation With Flexible Funding

In the past, bank financing was the only viable option for small business owners in need of capital to take advantage of growth opportunities, cope with changes in the business environment and/or bridge the gap when receivables lag for any reason. However, big banks are often quite rigid with their underwriting processes and often turn away merchants who are light on assets, have thin or subpar credit, or simply haven’t been in business long enough. Traditional financing also takes weeks or months to complete, which can feel like an eternity for small businesses. After all, a key advantage of smaller organizations is their ability to quickly adapt to a changing environment. If one is unable to secure the resources necessary to do so, dire consequences can ensue.
